When Will Jordan McMichael Hit Lincoln?

Off the heels of a wonderful weekend, Nebraska is back to work on the recruiting trail and our focus shifts from quarterback and wide receiver to tight end. Jordan McMichael is one of the tight ends currently holding a Nebraska offer. We caught up with him and chatted about his offers, how he feels about the Cornhuskers and found out when he's going to stop by Lincoln.

Minneapolis' Jordan McMichael finds himself still wide open in terms of favorites.  He claims none at this point, though, he does admit there is one school that is recruiting him harder than the rest up to this point.  "Right now, I'm getting recruited the hardest by Wisconsin.  They've written me a lot of handwritten letters, I've talked to Coach Brian Murphy a few times over the telephone, they've send a lot of mail and made sure to keep in touch," said Jordan.

Though the badgers claim a lead in the intensity of Jordan's recruitment, this has not deterred his interest in the Nebraska Cornhuskers.  "I'll be attending their camp this weekend.  I still have a good relationship with them and I've still been keeping in contact with them," he said.  Jordan says that the Cornhuskers have a "good shot" at landing his services.

Nebraska has been sure to keep up the correspondence with McMichael.  "They send me handwritten letters.  They talk about how much I'd like Nebraska and how it's the place for me. How I'd help their offense for the next few years and how I'd be able to play right away," said Jordan.  He claims no timetable on making a decision as he feels that the correct school will make itself apparent.  At that time, he will pull the trigger.  "I'm just going to see what happens," he said.   

McMichael says that he plans on visiting Minnesota, Iowa and UCLA unofficially along with camping at all three with the only possibility of not attending being UCLA.  McMichael is now up to four offers which are Nebraska, Kansas, Wisconsin and Northwestern and mentioned that Miami, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Michigan State, Oklahoma and Iowa amongst other schools came out during the month of May to check him out.
